Lovely place to explore Kodai from. Good food, great views and helpful staff. The tour was a great way to explore the region, and walking around the Lake on an evening is a great way to explore the culture.

Visited Villa retreat again after 2 years and I must say hospitality and service has only bettered. We were here this time with friends and family (group of 12 including kids). Our family chose to stay in the valley facing rooms as we had stayed in the family suit before, and it was a great decision. View from the valley...

Location : This hotel is located right next to Coaker's walk. The hotel and Coaker's walk have a common entrance. The location is...

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Retreat in December 2016 for our honeymoon. We had booked the Signature suite for 4D/3N stay. The hotel arranged a pickup for us from Madurai airport to the property and the pickup and check in were very smooth. Our first view of the room left us stunned. The room was very well...

The best place to just unwind and rejuvenate. Lovely rooms, beautiful view point, good food (do try their home made fruit jams, yumm) and an excellent bunch of people running the show. Special thanks to the manager for being so warm welcoming and friendly. I am definitely coming back again and highly recommend this place. Keep up the good work

We stayed here for 2 nights during our trip to Kodai (Jan 2017). Sharm and his team couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable. Whilst January isn't great temperature and view wise (very cold and a general mist reducing visibility) we still have a nice time. If visiting during these months ensure you book a room with a fireplace as...

Ever come back from a vacation that made you feel refreshed, happy, content, excited, relaxed and overjoyed? That's exactly how we feel after visiting Kodai's VILLA RETREAT:) The room: We stayed in the Valley View room and boy was it stunning! It took our breath away as we walked into the room! And just imagine waking up to that view!...
